Welcome to the latest installment of the Vikings Territory Training Camp Primer series focusing on Linval JosephSharrif Floyd and the Minnesota Vikings interior defensive linemen.

UPDATE: The Vikings signed DT Chunky Clements Friday and released DE Caleb Kidder.

As the Vikings open their last training camp in Mankato, they appear at-first-glance to be in pretty good shape along the defensive front. They have one of the best defensive tackles in football and employ a stable of talent for depth. However, there are still important questions to be answered. Like for instance, who is the starter next to Linval Joseph?

Vikings Training Camp Preview

In just 11 days, the Minnesota Vikings open training camp on the Minnesota State, Mankato campus. Rookie practices begin on Monday, July 24th and full team practices start Thursday, July 27th.

As usual, this time of year has brought optimism to the Vikings and their fans. But this year, things seem different. There’s good reason to be excited, as the offseason resulted in refreshing roster replacements, an influx of young talent, and a promising outlook on lovable quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

To recap the offseason moves, Minnesota added free agents Latavius Murray, Riley Reiff, Datone Jones, Michael Floyd, and Mike Remmers.

Vikings OTAs: 7 Positions Up For Grabs

The Minnesota Vikings’ organized team activities, or OTAs, began Tuesday. OTAs are offseason training sessions run with the purpose of developing players; or, simply put, practices without tackling. There are no 1-on-1 drills, only team drills.

OTAs can be a good barometer of how the team’s roster is going to shape up come the regular season. Generally, the players who practice together play together. Certainly, there are exceptions.

Lets take a look at several key position battles that will unfold during the Vikings preseason.
